Our nation is at a crossroads. Deteriorating American infrastructure is impeding our ability to compete in the global economy. Improvements are necessary to ensure our country is built for the future.
While we have made some progress, reversing the trajectory after decades of underinvestment in our infrastructure requires transformative action from Congress, states, infrastructure owners, and the American people.
That’s why, every four years, America’s civil engineers provide a comprehensive infrastructure assessment of the nation’s 17 major categories in ASCE’s Infrastructure Report Card. Using a simple A to F school report card format, it examines current infrastructure conditions and needs, assigning grades, and making recommendations to improve them.
